. yesterday senator lindsey graham grilled leon panetta for the obama's administration lack of leadership on the night four americans died, only to learn in fact that our commander in chief, barack obama, did nothing to help the victims that night. now last senate senator graham was on the program and reacted to that exchange right here. >> if i were a family member, and one of my loved ones was killed in benghazi, i would be sick to my stomach. the president of the united states talked to the secretary of defense for 15 minutes, never talked to the secretary of state until after the attack was over. never made a phone call saying how close are we to help these people? where is chris stevens? what did he do when he was told the ambassador was missing? we've had one ambassador killed in the last 30 years. the president of the united states has to account for his leadership here. i intend to hold him accountable. thus far the white house has delayed, denied, deceived and stonewalled, and this has to come to an end. he has to account for his leadership. >> sean: joining me now with a lesson
what would happen if a republican president had done what the obama administration has done as far as the drone program is concerned. >> sean: i mean, that's a good point. because here obama with no real criteria is going to be the judge, juror and executioner and going to allow for the assassination of american citizens, there's no other term, we can't assassinate foreign leaders because these are the same people that complained bitterly and eviscerated george w. bush. my conclusion, all of these democrats not only owe bush a policy, but politicized war. i'm not against drone strikes, but we've got to have a criteria. i'm not against enhanced interrogation and they're the ones inconsistent. your reaction. >> you're exactly right if the fifth amendment due process clause means anything, it ought to mean before the u.s. government can snuff out the life of an american citizen there ought to be some definable standard against which that citizen is judged and that citizen will be determined to be an imminent threat against the u.s. government. but this is a standardless determination
, you know there is that lacking as critics are pointing out under the obama administration when it comes to drone strikes, jeff toobin, if this were to be a george w. bush administration or republican administration, would the reaction be different? >> think about how outraged democrats have been for years about guantanamo, the treatment of the detainees there, the fact they have been kept there at all, torture, of course, as you mentioned. this is life and death. forget keeping you in a nasty cell in guantanamo. this is killing people intentionally and the obama administration thinks that's just fine under these circumstances. the same people who were so mad about what president bush was doing. >> this is not going anywhere. jeff toobin, thank you. tom juneau, thank you, both, very much. >> thanks for having me. >>> and this one today, olympic skier lindsey vonn took a frightening tumble in this championship race in europe. and then she caught a ride, look at this, from a helicopter. talk about dramatic. here she goes to safety. lindsey vonn, the face of women's skiing, danglin

terror which has grown 700% under the obama administration. whatever the benefit of the drone strikes, they have created enormous resentment among some here in the region, who view the strikes as another sign of american arrogance. everywhere i travel, from yemen -- >> i think americans they have no right. they have no right. this is our fight. >> reporter: to pakistan. >> you can keep saying, yes, you are hitting the top leadership. but the by-product of this is anger, anger among the innocent people who are getting killed. so you're just creating more terrorists. >> reporter: now the man who signs off on the kill list from a basement office in the white house, john brennan, about to be questioned in front of the world. >> i suggest to you that these targeted strikes against al qaeda terrorists are indeed ethical and just. >> reporter: in pakistan alone, there have been more than 300 drone strikes in the last decade, killing thousands of al qaeda and taliban, but more than 300 civilians, as well. a world away in remote villages, you can hear them. like a distant muted chain saw. a du

these difficulties. i have consistently commanded the obama administration for not letting politics get in the way of what is the essential rubric of the u.s.-israeli ire of our relationship, which is the military strategic support that be -- bilateral relationship, which is the military support that is provided. my friends in the administration have done everything they could to ensure politics do not get into the way of that relationship. host: this is from one of our other viewers following up on your earlier point about how the iranian people see americans. my father was from iran and we always wanted better relations with the u.s. that's me bring it back to the elections that will take place in june -- let me bring in that to the elections that will take place in june. what will take place? guest: i'm afraid very little. mahmoud ahmadinejad has a total breach with the people around him over domestic and foreign policy. there is no doubt that the economics sanctions have undermined the iranian economy. that has caused great hardship among the iranian heart -- iranian people. the sanctions are
